Niban Granular Bait kills Ants, Cockroaches and More. Without The Smell. Without The Harsh Chemicals.
Niban is the best solution for keeping your home pest-free without the use of harsh or toxic chemicals. Niban Granular bait is consumed by insects who then take it back to their colony, eliminating the entire colony. That’s why Niban is the only choice when you want effective killing power that targets pests with minimal impact to non-insects and the environment.
Kills and prevents:
- Ants (except fire ants)
- Carpenter ants
Niban At A Glance:
- Indoor/outdoor use
- Created with a concern for the environment
- Active ingredient is 5% boric acid
- Specifically targets pests

Niban’s formula makes it effective on a host of household pests, including slugs and snails and provides broader protection inside and outside the home. Unlike other granules, Niban will not degrade in heat or sunlight and will last through 4” of rain.
Niban is a superior granular bait, formulated with a concern for the environment. It is specially formulated with a borate compound that kills insects—and only insects. Borates are a naturally occurring mineral that is mined in California. Niban works by taking advantage of specific traits in the biologic makeup of ants, cockroaches and other insects. Rather than using toxicity to kill, Niban’s borate formula, when ingested, makes the pest unable to extract nutrition from the food it eats by disrupting the metabolic process. Even though the insect continues to eat and digest, it cannot gain nutrition from the food, and it starves.
Borates contain the element boron which is found on the periodic table. Boron is a naturally occurring element that is an essential micronutrient for plants and animals. We consume boron everyday in vegetables and salads. Boron is also a common element in soaps, cosmetics and ceramics. Because insects cannot excrete liquids, boron builds up in their system and locks onto the molecules that break down sugar. With those essential molecules blocked, the insect can digest sugars but cannot convert them to energy, and the result is starvation of the colony. Humans, as well as other mammals, birds, fish and amphibians, can excrete liquids, therefore boron does not build up in our systems. We simply use the boron we need and excrete the rest in our urine.
Interestingly, this mode of action does not affect the insect’s central nervous system, so insects cannot develop resistance to Niban. This makes Niban the perfect choice for those tough-to-control areas.
